The Gibson 2016 Limited Edition Nick Lucas Grande Electro Acoustic Guitar in Honeyburst is a celebration of Gibson's collaboration with the legendary guitarist. Remembered as "The Grandfather of the Jazz Guitar", Lucas was a prolific artist whose work spanned over 50 years, inspiring many great musicians along the way. Only 50 of these handcrafted models are being built, so act fast to avoid disappointment.

Sumptuous body tonewoods

The Gibson 2016 Limited Edition Nick Lucas Grande has been lovingly crafted using only the finest tonewoods, guaranteeing a balanced timbre with a deep bass that is paired with vibrant mids and completed with crisp highs. The open and expressive sound is assured by the combination of English walnut back and sides with an AA grade Sitka spruce top. The walnut and L-OO full body depth generates the energy, whilst the spruce projects that timbre with the utmost clarity. The radiused top is reinforced with scalloped bracing to optimise projection and resonance, as well as improving strength to prevent premature buckling or warping of the soundboard.

Sturdy yet elegant neck

Fitted to the body via a compound dovetail joint - which is supported by Franklin Titebond 50 hot hide glue -, is a single-piece mahogany neck. The neck joint optimises resonance distribution throughout the guitar. The neck is shaped to a V-shape profile, which provides a useful point of reference for the thumb along the back of the neck. Married to the neck is a single-piece rosewood neck, which is home to 19 frets that are adorned with traditional Nick Lucas mother of pearl inlays. The fingerboard edge is softened to ensure a more comfortable fit in the hand, whilst single-ply cream binding enables smoother transitions between frets.

L.R. Baggs Lyric System

Fitted to the 2016 Nick Lucas Grande is the L.R. Baggs Lyric pickup, which doesn't just allow you to play your model through an amplifier, but translates the instrument's timbre with the utmost transparency. The Lyric pickup uses a carefully positioned microphone within the body of the guitar to capture an even balance of the soundboard's response. The result is the microphone's ability to allow high gain before feedback, and noise-cancelling technology prevents unwanted reflections from colouring the output. Control comes in the form of a soundhole volume control, and a microphone presence control, simplifying control whilst offering exceptional control.


The 2016 model benefits from improvements to Gibson's build process, including a premium set-up by utilising state-of-the-art German engineered Plek technology. A new hand-rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridge maximises wood vibrancy, extending the longevity and vitality of the instrument. Fitted to the body is a traditional rectangle rosewood bridge with bone saddle, which supports each string to optimise intonation and sustain.

At the top of the neck is an AJ headstock with 17-degree taper to assist in maintaining string tension, intonation and sustain. Fitted to the headstock are nickel Waverly tuning machines with 16:1 gear ratio, which uphold tuning integrity firmly yet yield to adjustments smoothly and precisely.

The body is completed with a gorgeous honeyburst finish, which is protected by smooth, hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer to preserve the richness of the finish for as long as possible. Beneath the soundhole resides a firestripe L-00 pickguard and carries out the dual task of protecting against pickscrapes and scratches, whilst complementing the finish perfectly.
